Une histoire dramatique d'une famille dysfonctionnelle, qui découvre le passé peu avouable du père de famille pendant le régime de Ceausescu. Abordant plusieurs thèmes controversés, dont l'amour illégitime et l'avortement, le film nous oblige à nous poser des questions difficiles sur la morale et sa relativité, en testant les convictions de chacun.
« Written and performed almost like a stage play with a coda, Illegitimate moves smoothly from lighthearted insouciance to fierce explosions of anger and bitterness and then back again. [...] Though morality is obviously the main concern of the piece, Sitaru never attempts to preach. » (Dan Fainaru, Screen Daily)
« An intimate portrait of family life, replete with deep connections, unusual couplings, tension, resentment and reconciliation, the key to illegitimate success is how it takes all these ingredients and posits how they reflect developments outside this cramped Soviet-era apartment. This is highbrow realism, combining sharp social observation and compassion with a compelling narrative to demonstrate the way time distorts how the past and present are perceived. » (Patrick Gamble,
